NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of October's National Bullying Prevention Month, STOMP Out Bullyingtm, the leading national nonprofit dedicated to changing the culture for all students, calls on the nation to support their mission by raising awareness around the need to develop a society focused on kindness and inclusivity.
"We have always been an organization dedicated to spreading kindness and preventing bullying and cyberbullying. However, this year, we are encouraging communities, youth, students and society to use their voice to make bullying history," said Ross Ellis, CEO and Founder of STOMP Out Bullyingtm. "This October, we mark 14 years as an organization. I never want to see another child in pain," added Ms. Ellis. "And I never want to hear the words, 'I want to die.'"
The first Monday in October, October 7th, has been designated World Day of Bullying Prevention. On this date, STOMP Out Bullyingtm will partner with California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) for the first time to host a nationwide fundraiser in honor of World Day of Bullying Prevention. Participating California Pizza Kitchen locations nationwide* will collect 20 percent of participating guests' food and beverage purchases on this date to support STOMP Out Bullyingtm and the organization's commitment to reducing and preventing bullying nationwide. To participate, guests can present the fundraiser flyer or simply mention to their server that they are dining to support the organization.
